Dear friends and neighbors:
We are honored to be the newly elected President and Co-Vice Presidents for the 2019-2021 term.
We would like to take this
opportunity to thank our former presidents and board members for their
stupendous leaderships and relentless dedications; and to all our
members for their continuous support and generosity to our
organization. Today, CAANH is a vibrant and progressive
organization consisting of over 200 families; a direct result of your
hard work and dedication. Through this growth and continued commitment,
we have made a difference in our community and greatly enriched our
local neighborhoods by sharing Chinese cultural via numerous
educational programs and cultural events.
We also applaud and embrace our new/current board members, whose
new/renewed energy and commitment are essential to the continued
success of our organization and programs. Together, we will strive to
carry on the tradition of serving our community with the goals to
promote goodwill, education, community participation, and awareness of
Chinese culture and its traditions. We are proud to share with you that
in addition to our much beloved Herricks Lunar New Year Party (in its
18th anniversary!), annual gala (going on its 23rd anniversary),
and senior scholarship program, we also implemented programs such as
art contests for both Herricks and Manhasset school districts in the
past few years, not only that we have added Chinese Senior Club called
Joyfu for the last 9 years! All of these are possible because of
the volunteer efforts of our board and members. We continue to seek
active participants to support our programs and welcome all new members
to our organizations.
As a non-for-profit entity, CAANH relies entirely on the support of our
sponsors. Currently the majority of our funding is from donations and
participations of our supporters in fundraising events (e.g. Champions
for Charity, Annual Gala). In the coming year, we hope that we can
continue to count on your support and participation in these
fundraising events. Your generosity will enable CAANH to sustain the
numerous cultural and educational activities beloved by our schools and
communities. Your support and sponsorship are vital to us and highly
appreciated by all.
We look forward to seeing all of you and meeting new members at our upcoming events.
President of CAANH
Bryant Lew, Mandy Zhang
Co-Vice Presidents of CAANH
